Blog Tour & Review - Hard Ride by Trixie Pierce

Hard Ride
by Trixie Pierce
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: June 29, 2014

Nothing is sexier than a determined woman, qualities Katie Parker has in spades. Despite her father's lack of support, or maybe because of it, Katie manages just fine with Hard Ride, a mechanic shop where she is free to do the one thing that sets off her spark plugs: work on classic cars. What could be better than classic cars and a sexy mechanic?

Houston Moore ran as far as possible from his life as a Naval Intelligence Officer, right into a simpler life as a mechanic at Hard Ride. Having spent the last two years harboring a crush on his boss Katie, he can't believe his luck when she makes him an offer he can't refuse.

While 'friends with benefits' is a comfortable position for Katie, Houston believes more is possible and knows how to get what he wants. But when Katie realizes someone's embezzling from the shop, things get dangerous. With Katie's life on the line, can Houston save her, and convince her there's more to him than just great sex, or will the sparks sizzle as the danger passes?

I love books that have strong heroines, throw in that she works in a traditionally male role restoring cars, and I knew I was just going to love Katie. Then add in the fact that she is a kick-ass business woman on top of everything else, and I am definitely a fan!

And as much as I loved Katie, Houston was everything you would want in a man – totally alpha, but secure enough to let a woman be in charge, protective and loyal, yet knows that his woman can take care of herself – yep, everything you would want!

Even though there has been a huge attraction between these two, the fact that Katie is Houston’s employer has always held her back from starting anything with him. When she finally does give in the timing couldn't be more terrible – someone’s been embezzling money from the shop, as well as several of the other businesses that Katie owns, and now Katie has become a target. Add to that the fact that Katie carries around some pretty heavy emotional baggage that keeps her pulling away from Houston, and you know this relationship is in for one hard ride.

As Katie finds herself in danger, Houston’s protective side kicks in and he’s going to do everything he can to keep her safe…and work his way into her heart!

This was a fun, quick read with some mystery and nice, hot steamy times. The only complaint I would have is that it was too short! I would have loved to have had a bit more of the back-story on both characters – it sounds like Katie had quite the childhood and I would have loved to have learned more about what happened when she got her hands on her father’s business, I bet that would make for a story in itself! But overall I enjoyed this one and look forward to reading more from this author!

I was given a copy of this book from the author for an honest review.

Houston watched Katie pet the engine, her smile small, erotic. She made a small humming noise in the back of her throat, fingers lightly tracing the outline.

“Damn, Edelbrock sent a beauty, didn't they?” she whispered.

Houston adjusted his stance.

“All that rumbling power, just ready for the right person to handle gently, and rock hard on the roads.” She raised her eyes to meet his, and he jerked at the brightness of the jade green. “Ready for someone who knows how to handle her, when to go slow and easy through the turns, when to slam on the accelerator and let her run.”

His instincts kicked in, body going tense, muscles tight. She turned, keeping her eyes on his, licking bright red lips, rolling her hips more than usual as she walked to get the rolling toolbox. He didn't dare speak. He wasn't sure he’d be able to keep from begging her to let him have his way.

Katie was the only woman he’d ever known that could make working on a car so hot he was about to cum in his pants.

Although she hates writing bio's in third person, Trixie does love fast cars, fast men, and an enduring fascination with internal combustion engines. Living in the Rockies, she's traveled enough to know the mountains are home. When not working, she can be found with her head under the hood, or buried in the pages of her next novel.
